New Skype Certified products in April
In April there have been certified the following new software products:
Convenos Meeting Center Extra
Convenos Meeting Center is web-based collaboration software that combines a variety of collaboration functionality — participants can share documents and make notes on them, also share media and webpages, show and control their desktops or applications and draw pictures together. The initiator can use this Extra to select Skype contacts and start a meeting which will also create conference call and send a link to participants, collaboration will take place in web browser. In the meeting environment participants can post messages and collect notes, while the host can create polls that everybody can answer and see results. Alternatively, host can log-in Convenos via a homepage, enter contacts’ e-mails and create meeting from the web, then the invitations will be sent to e-mail addresses rather than via the Skype Extra. Starting a meeting this way, user can also choose what privileges to give to certain participants, create an Ongoing collaboration workspace for longer term projects, and add a Recorder to any meeting which means that s/he can record the whole collaboration session, both screen and audio. Convenos Meeting Center Extra is offered as a 30-day free trial product for Skype users. For more information, see http://www.convenos.com
A straightforward application for sending fax.

Ripplex Address Book
After two and a half years of Skype software certification, here is the first Skype Certified product that works on Mac OS. It has three different installers, Japanese and English for Windows and one in both languages for Mac. As the name itself says, it is an address book where user can enter friends’ information — name, address, phone, e-mail, Skype, webpage, YouTube, Google Talk etc. When connected to Skype, it imports also Skype contacts so user can call or chat with them directly from Ripplex. Also, Ripplex is a sort of community — its users can send friend requests to each other, choose what information to disclose to different friends and get notified about friends’ profile changes.
